Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen is a teacher from Denmark, teaching English at upper secondary level. In her spare time she reads and writes crime fiction in English and Danish, and in 2010 she sold her first flash stories to American magazines or publishers.


One story appeared in Discount Noir (edited by Ste Weddle & Patricia Abbott)

Since then she has published two collections of flash fiction, "Candied Crime" (humour) and "Liquorice Twists" (a bit darker).

Her bestsellers are the romantic ghost story "Heather Farm" (suspense plus romance in the Dunes near the Danish west coast) and the cosy novel "The Cosy Knave" (European title: "Murder deLight")

Wonderful setting (remote Scottish island), great characters and good plot.
A bit long-winded, however.
